Press & Media Features About Our Birds of Prey Adventures
When we visited Aire View Infant School we took along 6 very different owls, ranging in size from a tiny grey Scops owl all the way up to a huge golden Eagle owl. The children had been learning about nocturnal animals, so one of the things we explained was how you can tell the difference between owls which hunt in the day and those which hunt at night, just by looking into their eyes!
